At A Glance

If its seven ounces of weight are an acceptable addition to your travel bag, the Compass is an outstanding stand. It can hold your iPad in landscape, portrait, or typing orientation; it's rock-solid; it folds up small enough to fit in the pen organizer of many bags; and it looks great.

If Paper is your drawing app of choice, then you may want to consider the Pencil stylus, which unlocks palm rejection and Blend mode in the app. But for general use, you may want an alternative.
